Professor Guingona, or Dr. Phill, as he prefers his students to call him, is a historian of the modern world. In particular, he examines the entangled histories of China and the Philippines in the early twentieth century. He is also working on projects that explore race in port-city Asia, Islam in China and the Philippines, Asian educational missions, and writing and teaching world history. In the classroom, he loves to introduce unexpected historical juxtapositions, and he stresses wide-ranging interaction and local-global connections.
